Sialco maintains a synthetic chemistry laboratory and scale up facility that includes 80L, 20L, 10L, 4L, 1L glass systems, 50L SS reactor and a wiped film evaporator. This enables us to effectively scale up reactions from lab scale to commercial size. On occasion, small commercial size batches are also produced for our customer’s evaluation processes, procedures and test marketing
The R&D team consists of chemists who are supported by our onsite engineers during scale up. The laboratory has access to analytical capabilities including HPLC, GC, FTIR, UV-Vis, Lovibond Tintometer, Brookfield Viscometer, Karl Fischer Titrator, and Colorimeter that aid in the development process. The plant is also supported on the quality side where production process and finished products are evaluated for quality control.
